Game Preview:

The Hawks are at a low point. Going against a better team, injury riddled, and down 0-2, but I am not just Hawks fan when the good times role. You cannot be a Hawks fan and a front runner. So lets quit the moaning, stop the complaining, get loud, and root for Josh Smith to rip the rim down.There is no reason to be embarrassed when getting fighting mad is such a more effective emotion. The Hawks and the fans need to step it up.

Keys to the game:

  1. Don't go down 30.
  2. Bring the highlights to the Highlight factory. 
  3. Hot Flip.
  4. Run, run, run. The Hawks are not going to be beat the Cavs in the half court. That has been established. We are at home, lets dictate the pace. 

Enjoy the commet thread liberally, who knows how many more we have left.

Go Hawks!
